What is the best natural treatment for allergies?
While there are many natural treatment options for allergy relief, it is best to consult a doctor about their particular effectiveness before moving forward with natural treatment as a substitute for medication or other treatment methods. In some cases, it is best if natural treatment options are instead used to supplement your doctor’s prescribed treatment. Moreover, some supposedly natural treatment options can have adverse effects if they are used without the proper discretion and expert knowledge, which your doctor can provide. That said, some natural treatment options that offer great supplementary benefits include the following:
- Antioxidants, such as vitamin C
- Apple cider vinegar
- Certain herbal remedies
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- Vitamin D
If you have questions or concerns about any natural treatment options, our board-certified physicians at Reddy Urgent Care would be happy to listen to you and provide expert medical advice! Come for a walk-in appointment or call us at (714) 916-0241.
Does drinking water help with allergies?
Water is an essential part of any effort to improve and maintain your health! As such, it is assuredly vital to drink lots of water if you are dealing with allergies. Not only is drinking water essential to maintain your overall health, but it actually has direct benefits for fighting off allergies! When your immune system responds to an allergen, it produces antibodies that release chemicals called histamines that are intended to neutralize the allergen but which also cause an allergic reaction. However, the amount of histamines that are released is directly related to how hydrated you are, which means that drinking water can help reduce the intensity of your allergic reaction, to an extent. That said, drinking water is not considered a stand-alone treatment for allergic reactions but rather an essential part of a treatment plan that could include medication of some sort.
Does vitamin C help with allergies?
Like water, vitamin C is also essential to a healthy immune system! Moreover, it has a similar effect on allergic reactions as water in that vitamin C helps prevent unwarranted immune responses by slowing down histamine development and giving your body enough energy to fight off the allergic reaction. At the very least, vitamin C is an excellent option for additional treatment to get rid of your allergies fast.
What foods help relieve allergies?
In general, foods that are high in antioxidants, probiotics, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin C are great for fighting off the symptoms of an allergic reaction! Some of these foods include the following:
- Chili peppers
- Citrus fruits
- Salmon, or oily fish in general
- Sweet yellow peppers
- And many more!
